Accessibility & UDL: Designing for Inclusion Online - Facilitated Summer Workshop

View Workshop Times
Quality online teaching requires thoughtful design. This summer, OIT is offering a special workshop series conceived as a collaborative and facilitated online learning experience for instructors, GTAs, and staff who are interested in creating inclusive learning experiences in Canvas by applying the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

This workshop will provide a flexible approach to attendance, participation, and practice over five- weeks this summer, beginning Monday, June 7. Participants should anticipate spending up to 5 hours of effort each week to benefit from the full training experience.

As part of the workshop, participants will engage asynchronously in learning content, then participate in synchronous or asynchronous cohort discussions, apply concepts to course materials, and gain valuable insights and feedback from the workshop facilitator and this community of learners.

While the majority of this series will be asynchronous, plan to attend the following synchronous sessions:
Session 1: Monday, June 7, 10 - 11 a.m.
Session 2: Friday, June 11, 10 - 11 a.m.
Session 3: Friday, June 18, 10 - 11 a.m.
Session 4: Friday, June 25, 10 - 11 a.m.
Session 5: Friday, July 2, 10 - 11 a.m.

Following registration and a few days prior to each workshop, you will receive an email from the trainer who will provide you detailed information and instructions for each session including how to attend. If you have any questions prior to this workshop series email Eric Moore at emoore50@utk.edu.
